Mobile, SIM card, charger found in high-security Ajmer jail, two inmates booked

A keypad mobile phone with a SIM card and charger was found inside the high-security prison in Ajmer on Saturday during an early-morning search. Under the Rajasthan Jail Act, the jail administration filed a case against two inmates at the Civil Lines police station.

In the past, cell phones and SIM cards—which are frequently used by skilled criminals to operate their networks or threaten victims—have been found inside jails.

The Civil Lines police are continuing their investigation.

The only facility in the state where dangerous criminals are kept in isolation under strict security is the high-security jail in Ajmer. When the jail administration searched several cells early on Saturday morning, they discovered a cell phone hidden behind a book on a window sill. The charger was hidden in a white plastic bag, and the keypad mobile had a SIM card and batteries.

Khetpal Singh, a jail security officer, filed a at the Civil Lines police station against inmates Vikram Gujjar and Roshan Jat, who shared a cell.

Although there is strict security at the main entrance and even jail security officers undergo checks before entering the facility, as per TOI, sources claim that the jail administration has also started an investigation into how the mobile device entered the jail.
